AM- The dreaded uphill run!  It's funny to see how much these kids dread certain runs.  At the same time they show a lot of positivity once we get out on it.  My goal was to help some level 1 guys make it up the steep climbs.  As I headed out I ran with the girls, Roberts, Trey, and Nathan.  It was fun and I coasted some downhills with Jess. After 20 mins of downhill we of course had to flip it back.  I helped Nathan maintain a good pace and rely on his affirmations. At one point we heard some dogs barking from a side trail, I quickly ran up to protect the girls (mainly Alli). The dogs weren't going to do anything but I yelled at them to go home.  Surprisingly they both turned away after I yelled. 6.74 miles (1.50 warm up on my own) 

Camp was amazing!  I am excited to get the season going and see these kids in action!

Ran out about 6 miles on the main road from camp. Then I found a sign with a trail labeled: “Bryce canyon boundary.” I thought I would go explore that for a couple of miles. I did some good climbing then ran long hollow back towards camp. It was longer than expected. I wanted to run 14 miles and ended up running 17.5 miles

Dope run! My dad drove me and my bro and sis in law 12 miles up the marathon course from vernon. I wanted to run 14 but got a late start and wanted to be at xc practice at 8. I knew I had to run quick to make it to the finish line and my car. I ran really smooth the whole way. I know the course is fast and my times seem more impressive than they would be on a flat 12. However, I was proud of my mental toughness and calmness. Metler passed me in the last mile and I wish my legs would have responded better to go after him. At xc practice my quads were hammered so nothing impressive there. Ran with Roberts, Sadie, and Macy.

AM- Ran around the Dixie Center area looking for my watch then I added after weights. 5.75 miles

PM- I kept track of how much I ran around at Cedar All-Comers. Ended up being 1.05 miles 

I’m a bit frustrated at my lack of mileage this week. I have some excuses but I need to figure out how to milk more mileage with less time allotted to me.

AM- Got 5 in before meeting up with the team. I parked out by the grass valley/pinto road. I ran a mile up the steep road then back to the Roberts cabin. As I got close to the church these 2 cows got scared and crossed the road. One of the cows peeled out and slipped on the grass. It was quite the spectacle. I did my best to stay with the varsity but on the uphills I couldn’t do it. I still put in a decent effort. Then for the last 2.5 miles of my run I went hard trailing the varsity on the downhill. I threw in a 5:46 mile with some low 6s. 12.25 miles 

PM- After being in a car for nearly 8 hours today I had to get out and stretch the legs. Ran  until midnight. 3.58 miles

AM- Got up at 4 and had a slow but successful start. I parked by the S Wade dealerships then Bluff to 700 S. I felt really sluggish so I decided to mix in some tempo for 3 miles. I did 7:08, 7:01, and 6:56. Not super fast but felt like a good effort. 7.03 miles 

PM- Fun desert run overlooking Bloomington finishing with a 6:36 mile. Then relaxing hike/picnic with Marieta up towards Webb Hill. I knew I had to get out this afternoon because I have a standard of hitting over 10 miles each Saturday. Looking back I realized I have kept this standard since the first Saturday in May. I have averaged 13.5 miles over the last 17 Saturdays. 5.38 miles

AM- Camped down by Pine Valley Creek. Woke up at 5am and headed towards PV. I kind of like running in the morning before the sun comes up. It also helps me on hills because in the dark I don’t realize I’m climbing a hill. I made it to the whipple trail before I started to get some sun (around 6 miles). Then I switch backed for about 2 miles on the trail before turning around. All in all a good satisfying run!  15.42 miles 

PM- Crisp and calm Bloomington loop run at around 9:30pm. 4.84 miles
